Over the weekend, news broke that the penthouse of NYC's One57 tower, the glassy Central Park needle starchitect Christian de Portzamparc designed for what will undoubtedly be the most discerning of Russian oligarchs, oil-backed princes, and billionaire hedge funders looking for a little "fun," sold for $100.5M. Property records show the 10,923-square-foot duplex penthouse on the 89th and 90th floors officially closed last month, thereby shattering the city's previous record, an $88M sale to the 22-year-old daughter of fertilizer magnate Dmitry Rybolovlev.
Of course, it wasn't the highest penthouse on the market (that award goes to any one of the several record-busting supertalls being built in the city), but it's nonetheless got a theater, a steam room, a library, and some just-dandy Central Park views. Renderings, below:
